Three home wins on the spin for Chasetown FC as they see off Widnes

Chasetown FC made it three consecutive home league wins with a hard fought win over Widnes. 

The visitors took the lead after 23 minutes in controversial circumstances. A Chasetown player was down with a head injury but the visitors played on and George Lomax fired past Curtis Pond. 

The Scholars deservedly levelled when a Tom Hill effort was cleared off the line but from the resulting corner by Callum Cockerill-Mollett, James Askey powered home a header. 

Widnes were reduced to ten men when Sean Myler was sent off for a second yellow card. 

Chasetown took the lead just before half-time with a wonderful goal from Will Whieldon. He advanced from midfield and saw the Widnes goalkeeper Owen Wheeler off his line and delivered a perfect lob from 25 yards. 

Despite being a man down, Widnes had the better of the second half even though the hosts almost added a third when George Cater had his shot cleared off the line and Hill fired the rebound against the outside of the post. 

But in the dying seconds Chasetown did add a third when leading scorer Hill fired home from close range.
